OBD 2 Scanner for 2020 Ford 7.3L V8 Gas

My 20 year old cheapo pocket ODB II scanner is not working with My 2020 Ford F53 Chassis with Ford 7.3L V8 Gas Engine.

Scanner powers up, but displays "NO LINK" on a read operation. The scanner works on my Toad, 2016 Ford Fiesta.

It's either a incompatible scanner, or a bad OBD II port on this particular RV.

Does anyone have a ODB II scanner that has been verified to work with the 2020 7.3L V8 gas engine (also in the 2020 Ford F250 Super Duty Truck)?
Can you post make, model, and whether it cost under $100 ?

Please let me know as soon as you can as I have the RV up on jacks and trying to diagnose the solid Check Engine light

If the plug and contacts are the same as your toad, I would say there is a problem with the wiring. Just my guess. OBD2 is supposed to be universal.

I've used the OBDLINKģ MX+ (and Forscan) with my 2020 without a problem. If you don't want the Bluetooth option to connect to a smartphone, there is a cheaper version (EX) with a cable that you'll connect to a laptop. https://www.obdlink.com/products/obd...p/?ref=forscan

Looks like there are 5 different protocols for the OBD II network.
Here is a link that describes the protocols:
https://www.scantool.net/blog/which-...by-my-vehicle/

I am betting that my old scanner does not support the Ford Can protocol (CAN Bus).
I have the OBDLink MX+ on order from Amazon. Local Auto Parts Stores won't take returns on "Electronics", No problem with Amazon on a return.

Thanks for your help

A Scan Gauge D(diesel) or ll (gas) has mpg, Temps, pressures and much more, identifies and deletes trouble codes. About $160. But for me saves me hundreds on better driving technics and is more accurate than OEM gauges. Plug and play.

It is on the steering column but turned 90 degrees facing the passenger side. Just to the right of the parking brake release

The port is most always on or near the steering column. It may have a cap or cover on it so you may not be able to see the port connections and it is probably black and blends in so you have to look closely.
I recommend the ScanGauge II for the gas model, but do not know about the diesel truck (assuming it it diesel).
Thanks,
